Today is the day!

Today I am excited because the new Nicolas Sparks book is out! Look out Barnes & Noble at 12:30pm today!

If this book is anything like the others, I will have it done in 3 days! I truly am going to try to pace myself because I hate that I read it so fast then have to wait another year for his next!

I live for Nicolas Sparks novels!

I've been tagged!

Thanks Annie for the Tag. Here are 7 random factoids about me! Well, I am going to start with 4 as I am having a hard time coming up with the other 3. I will think about the others and try to complete them tomorrow!

1. I failed Kindergarten because I was too shy. I would make myself sick and I would cry every day just to go home.

2. I scream like a girl when I touch a spider web. EWWW. I always seem to walk right into them and then scramble and scream trying to get them off of my face, arms, everywhere!!!

3. As a young child, approximately 4-6 yrs old, my mother had to tape bows to my hair. I was in ballet and every recital there was some sort of headpiece that needed to be afixed with bobby pins, only, I didn't have enough hair for that. Therefore, she had to literally use scotch tape to hold them on.

4. I used to eat paper as a kid. I would eat lollipop sticks, grocery bags (brown paper) and notebook paper. I still eat the lollipop sticks but have given up everything else. Well, except the gum wrapper paper..hehehe

Happy Fall!!!

Welcome Autumn! WOO HOO. This is by far my most favorite season! Why? because it is one season closer to WINTER!!!!

Happy Fall to you all!

Back on the Bandwagon!

Matt and I have decided to go back on Weight Watchers. We were both on WW about 2 years ago and lost 40+ lbs in the 6months that we totally stayed committed. However, the move to Southwest VA was approaching and we both went off until we became settled in our new surroundings. Therefore, as of sunday a week ago, we both are back on the WW bandwagon; yes, I guess you can say we have finally become settled.

We both weighed ourselves yesterday and I lost 3.5lbs and Matt lost 3.9 lbs in our first week!http://www.weightwatchers.com/index.aspx

I meant to post this on Monday due to WVU losing to ECU last weekend but like most things, I totally kept forgetting my camera. When I did bring it, it needed to be charged...go figure. Therefore, here is Matt getting ready for the game. Even though the other Sweet Family members are VA Tech HOKIE fans, we watched the game with Matt. OMG, it got worse every quarter.

Now, for the real reason we watched WVU vs. ECU, Matt was making fun of VA Tech for getting beaten by ECU and stated that the Mountaineers were going to beat ECU and show us that VA Tech sucks. Well, WVU got beaten worse than we did.

When the game was over and he was sucking his pride up, I tried to take a picture of him but he had no parts of it.

Old or Unaware?

I decided to watch the VMA awards Sunday night because the kids wanted to watch and said come on mom, you like music. I, of course, oblighed!
Can I say, OMG and WTF is this world coming to? I am either getting OLD or I am totally unaware of what my kids are watching when they watch music videos.

Whatever happened to the day when all you worried about was a transvestite and his band...hence Culture Club (my 80's craze) or that your son wanted long, blonde hair like the rockers of Poison?

I was completely and utterly embarrassed watching the VMA's. Whoever this Russell Brand is that hosted the VMA's - burn him at the stakes! He was foul, vulgar and totally not funny! Demi Moore couldn't remember a microphone and Lil' Wayne couldn't keep his pants on and was consumed with trying to find his willy! He cussed, screamed and not a word was understood. After a few more nasty sex jokes about the Jonas Brothers and it was off to bed.

My kids can laugh all they want at the music I listen to but I will guarantee the people that sang/sing it can keep their clothes on during a performance!

UPDATE: A 2-hour replay of the premier will be on tonight at 8:00 for anyone that missed it!

Last night was the two hour premier of the CW 90210. I watched it in its entirety and really enjoyed it. Of course, it is NO MATCH to the original but it was a decent show.

Will I "have" to watch it every week . . no. The problem is it runs the same time as Big Brother and Wipeout. Not to mention the fall lineup getting ready to launch.

As you read the title JNHS I know you are saying what is that?

Well, Kristin came home Friday with some incredible news. She was inducted into the Junior National Honor Society at school.
Not that most of you understand the significance of this but Kristin just barely passed when we lived in Winchester. Now, she is making the honor roll and in the NJHS! Amazing!
